Dragon's Jaw: An Epic Story Of Courage And Tenacity In Vietnam
- Soldier's Stories, Modern Warfare, Vietnam & Korea
Slaying the Dragon of North Vietnam
For seven long years, hundreds of young US airmen flew sortie after sortie against a strategically important bridge in North Vietnam called Dragon’s Jaw. Many American airmen were shot down, killed, or captured and taken to the infamous "Hanoi Hilton" POW camp. But after each air attack, the bridge stubbornly remained standing. For the North Vietnamese it became a symbol of their invincibility; for US war planners an obsession; for US airmen a testament to American mettle and valor.
Using after-action reports, official records, and interviews with surviving pilots, as well as untapped Vietnamese sources, Dragon's Jaw chronicles American efforts to destroy the bridge, strike by bloody strike, putting readers into the cockpits, under fire.
